Honduras: Thousands March to Protest Fraud in Re-Election of Juan Orlando Hernández

HeadlineJan 08, 2018
H11 honduras

In Honduras, thousands of people took to the streets of the capital Tegucigalpa on Saturday to protest the re-election of President Juan Orlando Hernández, saying the vote was marred by widespread fraud. The demonstration was led by opposition candidate Salvador Nasralla, who challenged the U.S.-backed incumbent in the November 26 presidential election. Election observers and the Organization of American States have called for a new election in Honduras, saying the first vote was so filled with irregularities that it was impossible to declare a winner. Protesters have called for a national strike and boycott of Hernández’s scheduled inauguration on January 27.
